Congrats to Kathleen Rooney!

Congratulations to our very own Kathleen Rooney, who has received a Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) Grant from the City of Chicago!

The grant will support Kathleen’s visit to the Margaret Herrick Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Library in Los Angeles to research a novel when it is safe to travel again. Kudos!

Congrats to Miles Harvey!

Congrats to DePaul English Professor Miles Harvey on his new and upcoming book, THE KING OF CONFIDENCE, which will be published May 12 by Little, Brown & Company!

THE KING OF CONFIDENCE has been receiving a wonderful early response. National Book Award-winner Nathaniel Philbrick calls it a “masterpiece”; Pulitzer Prize-finalist Dave Eggers describes it as a “ludicrously enjoyable, unputdownable read”; bestselling author Jonathan Eig labels it “one of the best books of the year”; Publishers Weekly (in a starred review) says it will “astonish and delight fans of American history”; Kirkus calls it “perfect for fans of Devil in the White City”; and Book Riot has named it a Best Crime Thriller Book of 2020.
